    I'm printing photos on acrylic at 720x1440 with a UV printer that has Epson DX8 printheads.

    Does anyone have any Dither Type recommendations for getting the best photo printing results? Also any suggestions for settings on handling gradients in photos?

    Thanks!

    Are you intending to print signs or decorative art?

    I've never noticed a difference in output whether I used Stochastic or Adaptive Error Diffusion, so I just stick with Adaptive Error Diffusion (Using Caldera).

    I generally get better results switching rendering intent from Relative Colorimetric to Perceptual when gradients aren't printing well. Quality is more related to profiling/print mode/passes/inks/etc than dithering type.

    Print bitmaps with a rendering intent of 'Perceptual', print everything else with 'No Color Correction'. Pick the highest dither algorithm your software supports. The better the dither, the better the output.
